Founders Talk: The acquisition of a lifetime

After two years of lazy scheduling attempts and conflicts, Adam and I sat down to chat about Speaker Deck, GitHub, Microsoft and more.

Adam summarized our conversation well:

On today’s show Adam is joined by John Nunemaker (an old friend). For some of you listening you might remember John’s appearance on The Changelog #11, which was basically forever ago.

Or his company Ordered List — they made Gauges, Harmony, and Speaker Deck which was quite popular in its time — so much so that they attracted the attention of Chris Wanstrath, one of the co-founders of GitHub to acquire Ordered List. The rest as they say is history.

Today, John and I go back through that history to see what it was like to be acquired by GitHub and how that single choice has forever changed his life.
